Polymer Portrait Head Cracked, #2

Aaarg... AGAIN!
Come on Kato, what is the deal? I confirm the oven's temperature. I slowly heat the oven with the piece inside, also pre-heating. In this case, after the head completed baking, I left my head in the oven to cool for over 2 hours. I am so frustrated!

I kneaded the clay for a while. Blending translucent and flesh together, I wanted them well mixed. But, I worked on this for approximately 10 hours (last night and all day) and the layers prior were not going to be as recently kneaded as the subsequent layers... I am not that fast. Would that REALLY make THAT much of a difference?

I really am resisting going back to Fimo clay. The clay becomes too sticky and difficult to model when worked too long. So, I am at a loss. I guess I need to rethink my methods and my approach a bit. Any thought?

Thanks for your continued interest!

Another Beautiful Winter Day
